Litterbugs The Movie

Helped by her self-made flying mechanical creatures, a young inventor and a pint-sized superhero defeat the town bullies and find an unexpected friendship.

Young inventor Alice likes to keep to herself, but one day the local bullies, three spiteful girls who are obsessed with everyone’s social media status, humiliate her with a cruel video they post online. Unbeknown to Alice, she is being shadowed by Stanley, an eccentric little boy who is Captain of his own, imaginary superhero squad. He vows to avenge Alice, leaving her feeling obliged to protect him. The following day Stanley faces the girls in his costume and is instantly overpowered. He is totally distraught until three mechanical bugs, secretly controlled by Alice, zoom towards them. They descend upon the bullies and each girl receives a messy comeuppance. Alice pledges her allegiance to Stanley and his superhero outfit, The Awesome Squad.
